Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Caroline Aaron is a durable character actress best known to moviegoers as a key ensemble player in several Woody Allen films of the '80s and '90s.

But she gained the most notoriety playing Woody Allen's sister in his acclaimed 1989 dark comedy "Crimes and Misdemeanors," a character that the actress would somewhat reprise on the director's subsequent "Alice" and "Deconstructing Harry."
